    Wonderful page Mike. I really enjoyed your photos of the mountains. Zell am See was a great place to visit for me.

    How about this one: is it actually possible to drive here on a car with a large caravan in tag? I can't seem to get any intelligible answer from the people who own the road, so you are my only hope now. :o)

    "What may be better than mountains? Only other mountains!" That was a song of Vladimir Vysotsky who've called me to the Caucasus and have made me love mountains forever! Austrian Alps look very attractive as well. Great job, Michael!

    Ja der Großglockner ist auch in den warmen Monaten eine Reise wert :)! Im März war die Großglockner-Hochalpenstraße leider noch gesperrt. Übernachtung in der Edelweisshuette klingt gut - werde ich für meinen nächsten Besuch ins Auge fassen!

    nice mounty area with the highest point of Austria. I am not driver but to pay for the road with free entrance to the campings and museums along the road sounds good for me :-)
